yogurt, yoghurt, yoghourt, yogourt, yaghourt, yahourth, yoghurd, joghourt, and jogourt is only a sample having checked on the redoubtable Wikipedia! Reading what they say my mind is well and truly yoggled.

Does yogurt hurt or is it itself hurt? It does tremble or is that a ruse?

Attempt II was also mostly successful. I used only 1/4 the recommended amount of powdered soy milk, added a spoonful of sugar, a little vanilla, and kept the rest the same. Chalkiness gone! Also, it has less 'thickeningness' than the previous attempt. Hmm...

P.S. Why does yogurt - hurt - in your land?

I've only ever made soy yoghurt with store soy milk and it worked out fine. Remember agar won't give you any thickeningness - that's a technical term some of you beginners might not understand - unless you heat it long enough. But it sounds like you did okay and if that's the case you might as well work from your successful base. Probably a teaspoon of sugar would also keep the lactobacillus happy. In the end they'll eat it all and your yoghurt won't be 'sweetened'.

I finally made my first attempt at soy yogurt. It was a success, mostly. It was thick, not gelatinous. I used both agar agar powder and tapioca starch. I use powdered soy milk mixed with water. Normally, I use 1/4 the recommended amount of powder soy milk to water. To make the yogurt, I used the full recommended amount. My result looks good but tastes chalky to me. I might use watered down soy milk for my next try. Maybe it would be better to add some sugar or soy protein powder to give the bugs something to eat. What do you fermenting experts think? I put together this recipe: recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
